Took a nap and dreamed that I made a mastodon bot posting images of words tattooed on fists and the one that went viral said “GOLF DADS”

It thinks this is me.

I must say: I *do* feel some eerie familiarity looking at them.

Tesla? No way. I know TOooo much about computers to want to drive around in one of the beasts.

more reasons to hate Zuckerberg, deadnaming as a policy choice 

As if you don't need any more reasons to delete your Facebook, and Instagram and throw your Occulus in the e-waste bin: Facebook won't let a friend of mine change their name until they update their birth certificate, and the state they were born in won't let them update their birth certificate until they show proof of gender confirmation surgery.

You don't have any say on someone's name, so fuck off to hell, Zuckerberg.


@ziffy For many already owned #wordpress blogs ( something around ~milions people) the easiest solution could be just fediverse-enabling their blog with #activitypub #plugin

MarkovJunior is a probabilistic programming language where programs are combinations of rewrite rules and inference is performed via constraint propagation.

Good overview of the Belgian gov's data retention proposal, forcing platforms to provide metadata to authorities. This is important as it would result in a ban of those that don't - or can't - like Signal. As this proposal could spread to other EU member states, it needs to be fought at every turn, before it is too late

Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.

I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.

The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.

Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!


Uh I just got DMed by the COO of Tumblr asking about hiring contractors to make us fully #indieweb compliant, and possibly even #fediverse integration. Anyone out there looking for work?

"The innovation of Al/ML is its ability to “do” things without “doing” things because they were “done” without a “doer.” Proxy discrimination (or algorithmic pricing) has the same real effects of discrimination (or collusion) but without any explicit human decision being made. The effect still happens in the world, but nobody is responsible. Nobody did anything. Nobody knows for sure how it happened or who was affected. The designers and users are granted plausible deniability. Al as alibi."


When people ask why bother with combinatory logic, knowing that it maps so poorly to silicone, to the point of making it quite useless - I think of Thoreau's

“This curious world we inhabit is more wonderful than convenient; more beautiful than it is useful; it is more to be admired and enjoyed than used.”

Tell your young people not to give their spare energy to employed work. Their employers will take it if they give it but all that happens is the young folk burn out. Teach them “no” and “pay me”


Would you rather have two ginormous instances or a million tiny ones?
